Looking for Freedom is the title of a song published by Marc Seaberg in 1978 (16th place in Germany).
Origin and content
According to his text, Looking for Freedom is the report of a young man who grew up rich and who left his parents' house because he had no freedom despite property. He has been traveling around the country since he left, doing odd jobs with which he earns little money in order to seek his freedom.
Version by David Hasselhoff
In 1989 the song was released as a successful new recording by David Hasselhoff , which also lends the title to an album produced by White by Hasselhoff. The official video from 1989 showed the singing David Hasselhoff as well as numerous recordings from the television series Knight Rider , which allow associations to the series content. In the said crime - action series Hasselhoff plays the hero Michael Knight, who fights crimes on behalf of the Foundation for Law and Constitution.
Since the song contains the word "Freedom" (English for "freedom") and was published around the time the Berlin Wall fell , it was interpreted as a freedom anthem. In 1989 it was the best-selling single in Germany and Switzerland and was number 1 in the charts for eight weeks in Germany , four weeks in Switzerland and two weeks in Austria . David Hasselhoff won the Golden Lion of Radio Luxemburg in 1989 with the piece .
